A home chef like Ree Drummond never wants to feel overwhelmed on Thanksgiving. "To me, that defeats the purpose of the holiday," Ree says, "which is supposed to be about spending time with family and friends!" Amen to that, sister!
Still, staying on top of everything can be really hard if you're hosting or cooking a big family meal. There's preparing the turkey brine, a bowl of mashed potatoes, and all the Thanksgiving sides in between. To make the day run smoothly, Ree starts early: "I count backward from Thanksgiving and make a list of what has to be done the day before, two days before—all the way back to Monday."
That's a fantastic strategy when it comes to timing, but even the most experienced cooks can miss an ingredient (or two... or three). And what happens if you—gasp—forget the Thanksgiving wine? Well, Whole Foods Market is a great option. They basically have everything you need, and their wine department is pretty well stocked. Plus, they even offer Thanksgiving takeout catering if you need a little help covering all the bases. Here, we're sharing Whole Foods' Thanksgiving hours, so you don't have to sweat if something slips your mind.
What are Whole Foods' Thanksgiving hours in 2022?
Well, there's one quick base to cover first: Yes, most Whole Foods stores are open on Thanksgiving this year. The majority of stores will be open, however, many will operate with modified hours.
Your best bet is to use the store locator tool to check your local market's holiday hours ahead of time. Chances are many will close early, and you don't want to show up to a locked door! And if you can't make it to Whole Foods, there are plenty of other great grocery stores open on Thanksgiving, in addition to the many restaurants open.
Here's to Ree's great prep advice and an even greater meal!
